Field Day is sponsored by the ARRL is always held on the 4th full weekend in June.

For 2021, the ARRL have extended the special COVID-19 rules from 2020  ARRL to Extend Field Day Rule Waivers from 2020, Add Class D and E Power Limit 

As we are getting closer to the event, here is a status update. Provided that Ontario COVID-19 Rules allow such gatherings on the FD weekend (June 25-27) we hope to proceed, but it is increasingly looking like a minimal effort like last year.  We may not know the situation until just a few days ahead of Field Day. We have no choice but to remain flexible and be ready to shift into high gear at the last minute.

 We have excellent facilities outdoors at the Corkery Community Centre 3447 Old Almonte Rd. where we also have access to a kitchen, indoor washrooms and air conditioning.  You can check the map here.

 We will set up either Friday, June 25 (less likely) or the morning of Saturday 26 (more likely).  It will depend on how elaborate our set-up can be under the circumstances. 

 Anyone interested in coming out to either help set up, operate, or tear down can contact me at ve3ytz AT

 Last year we were able to pull off a successful Field Day despite COVD-19. Let’s do it again in 2021! 



Please contact (fieldday AT for more information.

If you are not able to participate in person at Field Day, but still wish to contribute to the success of our event, you can submit your score to the ARRL and attribute your points under the group effort “Ottawa ARC”. Last year we had over a half dozen members do this adding substantially to our overall score.
